    One way to get shiny results without the chemicals.

    Recipe #70980

    From the Thursday magazine; this was submitted by Jyoti S. Mehta.

    Recipe #59326

    This will help take care of those fruit flies that gather around the stuff you have to take out to the compost pile or those bananas you haven't gotten around to baking with yet. The photo I posted (the one with the cherry & grape tomatoes) shows several fruit flies on the paper already (and a couple are in the vinegar, though you can't see them)--not even three minutes after making the trap! Some kinds of cider vinegar work better than others--typically, I find the darker the vinegar, the better it works. I know some people have said they prefer to use plastic wrap over the top, but I find that the paper cone (though it takes some fiddling to get it to fit just right) works best.

    Recipe #187531

    My mom used to do this all of the time and I wondered why the house didn't reek of curdled milk, but it never did and this works great!

    Recipe #115712

    "From the Chef's hat" column of the Thursday magazine dated April 10-16'03. DO NOT DRINK!

    WOW! No streaks, no smears, no buffing. This will clean ceramic tile counter tops, windows and their vinyl casings, SS appliances, sealed wood AND it removes hairspray from mirrors. So far that's all I've tried it on, as I came up with this recipe just this morning. I've been a cleaning fool today, experimenting on everything. I love it...Let me know what you think.

    Recipe #135802

    Cleaning your microwave couldn't get any easier than this!

    For those of you who hate poison-type drain cleaners, use white vinegar and baking soda. This will clean and unclog a drain. Also drops of white vinegar in your pet's water will keep away fleas and ticks!

    Here's what Jerry Baker uses to clean and deodorize pet urine-damaged areas.

    Recipe #101342

    Cold weather and low humidity can cause you to walk around the house getting shocked by static electricity, especially from your carpets. You can easily and inexpensively remove the charge from the carpets with this simple home remedy. We use ultra downy clean breeze, but any good quality fabric softener will work fine. This also makes a great 'faux-febreez' to help make your home smelling fresh & clean. :) Other great things this spray does: Spray some on a dry paper towel, and toss it in the dryer! It's more economical than dryer sheets, :)

    Highly effective! This recipe was shared with me yesterday by my neighbor, Kathrine. I had to ask her what she put on the weeds at the corner of her lot that adjoins my garden because although her weeds had turned brown and died, so did a large patch of my green grass. That's when she shared this recipe, and let me tell you....IT WORKS! Recipe can be doubled or tripled easily.

    So, you've bought one of those nifty little squirt bottles of cleaner for your glasses, and now it's empty. Should you spend another small fortune on name brand refills or another bottle full? Absolutely no need. For less than $3 you can have a lifetime supply of refill at your fingertips.

    Is your laundry looking dingy? Are you seeing spots before your eyes? To keep your washer spotlessly clean, it is important to remember to give it a once over every six months, or every three months if you have hard water. Is your Dish Washer dingy? See my recipe for Recipe #87538 ! From Talking Dirty Laundry with the Queen or Clean, by Linda Cobb

    Recipe #63666

    This stuff works! Will even de-scent a roadkilled skunk. Has to be made fresh every time.

    Recipe #135821

    As much as I love the aroma of a fireplace, bonfire, or our woodburning stove, I also love to throw in a few herbal fire bundles once in a while. Make Valentine's Day more romantic, spice it up in the fall, or try different herbs for a Christmasy feel. It's relaxing, and a nice way to fragrance your home the natural way. And in Native American tradition, sage bundles are very cleansing to your surroundings.

    Recipe #83035

    ATTN: Anyone with a stinky garbage disposal! This really works, I promise! And its all organic!
